Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we gave it a fairly respectable grade in nursing, where it received a B-. This was better than its other category grades. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second highest area was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Short-term care grades are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home earned mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of C in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in category J, K or L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to place resident safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored is long-term care. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 59.060402 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
